DC Film Alliance: a local filmmaker's best resource

DC Film Alliance: a local filmmaker's best resource

The DC Film Alliance is quite possibly the single best organization for filmmakers and cinephiles in the Nation's Capital. Founded by Jon Gann, who is also the man behind the highly successful DC Shorts Film Festival, the DC Film Alliance offers seminars on filmmaking through the DC Film Salon. Information on topics such as screenwriting, film promotion, and fundraising is presented by knowledgeable people in the field. The laid back Film Salons also offer an opportunity to meet other film enthusiasts and develop connections to potential collaborators.

Christmas Celebration 2010

Christmas Celebration 2010

The holiday’s are here.  People are Christmas shopping, people are caroling, and it’s snowing.  The holiday’s are in full affect.  But one exciting thing that has come to our area is the Christmas Celebration at Evangel Cathedral in Largo, Maryland.  The Christmas Celebration has been a big hit in our area for many years in the past.  This play will leave you in amazement as you watch the birth, crucifixion, and resurrection of Christ.  You also can’t forget the live animals, the laser shows, pyrotechnics, and other special affects.  But this year marks the 20th anniversary of the Broadway style play.  Twenty years is a huge milestone, so what wouldn’t be better with performances by Grammy artists Yolanda Adams, Donnie McClurkin, and Marvin Sapp.  If you haven’t ever seen this show, this would be the perfect year to attend this extraordinary event.

12 Marching Bands Showcase Their Talent

Marching bands from Charles Herbert Flowers, Dr. Henry A. Wise, Jr., DuVal,
Friendly, Gwynn Park, High Point, Largo, Laurel, Northwestern, Oxon Hill, Potomac,
and Surrattsville high schools will come together to showcase their talents for the
community during the 2010 Marching Band Showcase.

Each year, the annual Marching Band Showcase provides high school marching
bands the opportunity to perform for each other and the community in a non-competitive setting. Prince George's County high school marching bands that participated in the Band Assessment Festival the previous spring are eligible to participate, and two adjudicators will provide performance feedback to the bands and their directors.

Members of the community are invited and encouraged to attend this fun, family
event. Tickets are $5 per person; elementary school students and younger will be
admitted free with a paying adult.
